thank you everyone, I have all the information about the Foster family once they arrived in New Zealand. I can't find any information about where they came from inEngland

So can you please give us the information on their death certificates? (Joseph’s and Amelias)

Hello,

There are a few trees on Ancestry for this family.  If you have an subscription perhaps try and make contact with one of the members.

Deleted what I had put down.

Cheers

Is this card at Canterbury Museum your family?

https://collection.canterburymuseum.com/objects/721239#&gid=1&pid=1

“Joseph Foster, Mariner  b ‘34 marr 10.9.56 Amelia Ann Wells, d Thomas Wells, mariner
Son Wm Thos b Lytt. ‘66 storeman, marr 9.12.91 Eliz. Frances Taylor. Etc


“? Amelia Foster day of Joseph Foster & Amelia* marr Enoch Barker, 2nd wife, 14.2.59. Lytt. M.R.

from what I can see Footscray is East London - is this Amelia Ann Wells with father Thomas ??

yes that is the family I'm researching but the information is incorrect. The Amelia Foster who married Enoch Barker is not the daughter of Joseph & Amelia Foster. She is the sister of Joseph Foster

I agree with you Mckha489 that the actual Certs need to be purchased.

It appears to me that Anc Tree owners have not brought them and are just going by Cemetary Records and NZBMD Index.

Looking at the 1851 Census for the Wells Sarah was nee SCUDDER;

WELLS, EDGAR mmn   SCUDDER 
GRO Reference: 1844  D Quarter in DARTFORD UNION  Volume 05  Page 88

WELLS, EDWIN mmn    SCUDDER 
GRO Reference: 1840  S Quarter in DARTFORD UNION  Volume 05  Page 84

Thomas Packman WELLS married Sarah SCUDDER 18 Oct 1830, Deptford, Kent
(Familysearch.Org)

F/S also has Bapts of the children of Thomas Peekman/Peckman Wells and Sarah;
Rosetta/James William/Edger/Edwin, but I cant see Amelias.

1851 Thomas Wells is born Knockholt, Kent

Knockholt is a village and civil parish in the Sevenoaks District of Kent, England. It is located 5 mi north west of Sevenoaks & 5.7 mi south of Orpington, adjacent to the Kent border with Greater London.

I haven't purchased the death records so I don't have the information. I have information of the other branches of the family. Wells, Scudder etc. Its the Foster branch where I have drawn a blank
